fatalities. but only now is gm addressing this. it took them a nanosecond to jump all over toyota when it was having acceleration issues. whether it's one of our own or one word union own or one of our individual. and toyota would just be needing a tongue lashing. gm got away with what looks like murder. $35 million for dismissing a problem that could have killed 13 people. compare that to 13 million and former national transportation safety had to this is only tragic but it's criminal.
and no one ever intends to kill people. but clearly dragging its feet and addressing something about clearly was these issues here. doesn't? >> oh, absolutely. it is hard to believe that they did this for that long. particularly since they were in conversation wiih the national trafffc highway safety administration back in 2001. it was caused by -- caused by a failure of the ignition and the steering and the power brakes. and yet even from 2007 through 2014, general motors did nothing. neil: it's always easy to play monday morning quarterback. through which we were getting gm
ennineers. do you have any way to explain the difference in treatment that thee are getting versus what they instantly got? >> i don't think there's much difference. they try to cover it up and one a terrible crash occurred that's when the national press picked it up and toyota got zonked as it should have. neil: you're quite right about that. but i do remember that there was a great deal of federal hearings and the like. i wonder whether that open the double standard with two different issues here. >> i think this is a terrible
defect. it's outrageous that general motors can do this back in 2007 at the latest. but i think that it hasn't played out just yet. i think that there will be congressional hearings and that general motors will get what it can. one of the things i'm concerned about is that the national highway traffic safety administration has not issued an interpretation that it was required to issue last october when they raise the penalty from 17 to 35 million. to avoid giving that higher penalty this is much too low and it should be in the 200 million-dollar range and i hope that congress will finally raise it in the new legislation that is coming out so they get a serious penalty. were the justice department can put in jail or fine a company
that misleads the government or doesn't inform the government. and we haven't seen this play out yet. also the new president was head of all of the product development that was overseeing quality control and as far as i know she did nothing but she was not the one who apologized to be one someone can a kind of left in the lurch. do you think that all of the problems that they were having beers later contributed to going
slow on this investigation? >> i think that was a part of it. and together it is the recipe for disaster that was formed to try to take care of it. >> this was well out there. the last thing you wanted to do is get bad press. >> does come the word didn't get out to the publicly it should have. there are many questions to be asked theirrtoo many unanswered questions of how and where and when. this is taking care of properly
we wouldn't be at this point. >> we did reach out to see if general motors would come on. saying that ensuring our customer safety is our first order of business. we are deeply sorry and working to address this issue as quickly as we can. that is a guy who sells these cars, even those that have nothing to do with what happened here. people say i'm going to go slow? >> that's normal, of course they're going to. but how fast would they react so they can react our customers? they did give us a high level of comfort in that sense, telling us exactly what to do when a customer comes in and what to say as far as the fix those. >> but did any of you guys go back and do you really couldn't help but us out here and given give us the heads up?
>> i think that some well and i think that it's going to happen. >> they talk about this and then i'm? >> there hasn't been any discussion about that at all. everything has been focused on customer safety ann getting customers back into this. >> i had never seen general motors move so quickly on such an issue in such a short period of time. forty-six week is an incredible amount of time and now has just opened up and it's been 10 years. it's funny that we can fix this and 46 week. >> it is ironic. in the meantime, a man whose daughter was killed in one of these back in 2010. and now he's fuming and demanding answers. here and only here tomorrow. have you ever asked yourself what is really the deal?

here. neil: it's very vital so that they can be checked. why is that crucial? >> because we are trying very hard to trace the funds would come from overseas was a organizations. when you have online gambling, you can have designated winners and losers and it's impossible fbi.egulate according to the and because of that there is no way to tell who the source of those funds are and where they -re going. it poses an enormous risk for us and we know the world is not exactly a police. neil: it would require more snooping in some way. >> yes, going back to what the law was for over a decade until the obama administration in the justice department unilaterally change it. congress passed and the president signed a bill, making it illegal to have interstate
gambling. what happened is that it was interpreted to say no to the control of gambling like this. just a few months ago that his department said we are going to reinterpret what had been the rule and rulings of state can do online gambling. a few states have taken it up and that's what prompted the at yet or that we can't monitor the and this poses some risk and criminality and terrorism and we just can't control it. >> me the viability of a two-party system in states like new york is absolutely essential. when you have common of republicans saying that maybe he is a democrat that is not at his the other democrat, to me it's very to mccain.

neil: but we don't do that -- >> i might say also in the military, that a lot of the so-called entitlements there pensions, and health costs, and so on are also spending out o control, the more that happens the more it drives out the fundamental functions of vernment. neil: to your points on that issue and others, presint passed on even minor cost of livi adjustment on some benefit programs in his latest budget blurint tt so-called bargain he made with speaker boehner, and republicans balked on doing anything that would remotely hurt veterans, deemed cruel to them, if we can't me minor adjustments we'll have big problems, right? >> right, we have to be able to do it i remember in the days wh i was in office, ronald reagan of predent, tip o'neill speaker the house, somebod asked roppa ronald reagan if

the u.s. senate would have to apove the admission of 10 new senators. in to their body, diluting their power. why does senator fro nevada or alabama or ohio want to giv california 10 more senators? neil: his logic does make sense, at leastase level, thats that it is a very big state. unwieldy state,n so far as interests and you know even physical concts are very desperate throughout the state, i don't know that means you have to have 6 different states, butt makes it disfunctional. what do you make of that argument and why the 6 pieces? >>'t know why the 6 pieces we have n and south carolina, and north and south dakota, two states is possie, that was tried 1 in late 1850s, but.
